Posted by on Aug 15, 2016 in Injections

When you are looking for non surgical beauty treatments such as BOTOX™ or Juvederm it becomes clear that there are so many options available to you. You may have an idea of the results you wish to achieve, be that, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines or reducing those deeper lines around the mouth. By listening and understanding what your desired results are allows our expert practitioner, Lucy Elliot, (over 12 years experience in cosmetic injections) to offer you the best course of treatment to you.

Front of ClinicThe clinic offers a relaxed atmosphere where you will never be rushed through, ensuring that all your questions are answered. If you are a coffee snob, then you are coming to the right place! Over the past 11 years, working within this industry we have complied a list of frequently asked questions that people often come armed with, especially when they are considering injections for the first time. Here at Advance we specialise only in the injectable side of rejuvenation treatments although we are happy to offer Microdermabrasion as a feel good and freshen up the skin treatment.

Do you offer free consultations?

Yes we do. The consultation is your chance to discover the best options available to you. You can then go away and think about it and email/call with any that pop into your head once you have left.

What products do you use?

Our main products are manufactured by Allergan, who are the only producers of genuine BOTOX™ and also the full Juverderm range. Their website is brilliant for understanding in more detail what each of their products is designed for. http://www.juvederm.co.uk/

Do you offer a payment plan?

For any treatment packages in excess of £300 we will happily offer you a payment plan. Just mention this during your consultation.

Do you offer a review after I have had a treatment?

Yes, especially after you have had BOTOX™ as unlike with fillers, the results take longer to shine. It is usually between 2-4 weeks after your treatment. No charge is made should you require further BOTOX™

BOTOX™ for the Jaw Line?

Posted by on Feb 14, 2014 in Botox

Did you know that BOTOX™ can be used to lift the jaw line? Nor did we until three years ago when experienced and advanced injector Lucy Smith joined the team. With over 10 years experience in the field of aesthetics Lucy has not only trained other medical professionals how to inject products such as BOTOX™ and Juvederm but she also attends many advanced injection training courses. This, combined with her passion for exceptional results makes her an asset to this independently owned clinic in Maidstone.

So what can it do? It is the equivalent of two areas of BOTOX™ that is injected just underneath the jaw line. It takes about two weeks to see the full effect, but the results are amazing. It just takes the edge of the sagging would be a blunt way to put it!

If you would like to know more or would like to speak to Lucy then please call 01622 600020

What do you want to know?

Posted by on Feb 14, 2014 in Botox, Injections, Juvederm, Non Surgical Beauty

When you are considering any form of non surgical cosmetic procedure it’s important to feel comfortable with what you are having done. The first time you attend a consultation can be daunting but it’s the chance for you to have all your questions answered and find out what course of treatment is right for YOU!

Over the past five years Advance has built up a great rapport with many of our clients and as a result they have been happy to share with us some of their initial concerns and reservations about having injection treatments done. Some are comical and some are more deep rooted, but our opinion is, if you don’t ask, you won’t know

Q. Is it permanent?

A. Oh how things have changed since the disastrous ‘Trout Pout’ incident some years ago….. The fillers we use will last anything from 9-18 months, but if you were really unhappy without your deep lines and folds they can be removed. Botox will wear off in time and isn’t permanent.

Q. Will it hurt?

A. It depends what you mean by ‘HURT’ – for fillers the skin is numbed down before injecting and for Botox it’s such a little tiny needle and the process is over very quickly.

Q. Will my other half notice?

A. This depends on how closely they examine your face! Botox takes anything from 3-14 days to take effect and it is not uncommon for people just to comment that ‘you look fresher’. Fillers is instant and immediately after treatment there may be some swelling but it goes down quite quickly. There is a chance you could bruise but this is usually minimal and if you take arnica capsules a few days leading up to treatment it can really help.

Q. My friend says I need Juvederm 4. Do you offer this?

A. Yes we do, but what one person needs may differ to what another person needs. This is why you will always be invited to attend a free consultation prior to starting treatment. This way the right product can be found for the results you want to achieve.

Q. I have had a consultation somewhere else and was told I need a lot more products that you have suggested, why is this?

A. At Advance we look at the results you want to achieve and work out a treatment plan based on this.

Q. Do you offer a payment plan?

A. Yes we do for courses of treatments over £600. This can be discussed at the time of your initial appointment.

Q. Do I have to come back for a review?

A. With Botox we invite you back two weeks after your first treatment with us. This allows us to gauge your prescription dose and monitor how well it has taken. There is no extra charge for this appointment.

 

To book your free consultation please call 01622 600020 or text 07849 845620 and we will call you back. Remember, we offer a down to earth approach to non surgical beauty treatments and are here to answer your questions. It really is ALL ABOUT YOU!

Hyperhidrosis

Posted by on Oct 3, 2013 in Botox, Hyperhidrosis, Injections

Everybody sweats in some form or another, it’s a normal part of how our bodies regulate temperature. However, people with hyperhidrosis sweat in amounts far greater than needed to control their temperature. Of course, this may cause the person some distress or even embarrassment but there is a way to reduce this sweating and allow yourself to continue a normal life.

For some people hyperhidrosis may be linked to an underlying condition such as diabetes or an overactive thyroid gland. People with this condition produce a large volume of sweat meaning that the affected areas may be constantly damp. This may affect every day activities and make normal routine activities more difficult to carry out. This may also have a dramatic impact on the person’s social life. Excessive sweating does not necessarily mean that the person suffers from body odour. Body odour is in fact caused where the sweat remains where it is for an extended period of time.

If you suffer from excessive sweating and it is having affecting your life then book in for a free consultation to find out how Botox™ could help you and allow you to lead a more normal life.

What can Botox Treat?

Posted by on Aug 11, 2013 in Botox, Injections

There is often a little confusion about what BOTOX™ can be used to treat. People often think that it is for the lines from the mouth to the chin but it is more commonly used around the eyes for frown lines, crow’s feet and the heavier lines on the forehead. But did you know that BOTOX™ can also be used to redefine the jaw line? You know, that part of the face that gives away age and naturally starts to sag a little. By injecting BOTOX™ along the jaw line and just under the chin can enhance the appearance giving you a much fresher look. This counts as two areas to be treated and prices can be found here. Treatment for BOTOX™ usually takes no more than a few minutes and all you feel is a little pin prick sensation and although you can return to your normal daily routine following a treatment you are advised not to lie down for about four hours.

So where else can we benefit from BOTOX™? People who suffer from sweating heavily under the arms (also known as Hyperhidrosis) which is usually caused by an overactive sweat gland have found that treatment with BOTOX™ stops this reaction. Thus allowing people to continue about their business in a normal manner without the fear of raising their arms. As BOTOX™ is a prescription only drug it should not be administered by a practitioner who isn’t medically qualified to prescribe. After having a treatment for the first time you should be invited back to attend a review appointment where a top up may be given to you to achieve the desired effect, usually this is at no cost to you. You should also be able to attend a free consultation to assess your suitability for treatment.

If you would like to find out more about BOTOX™ treatments in Maidstone, Kent or other anti-ageing injections such as Juvederm Ultra please call 01622 600020 – the down to earth approach to non surgical beauty treatments.
